Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

Welcome to Varied Expressions of Worship

This blog will be written from an orthodox Christian point of view. There may be some topic that is out of bounds, but at present I don't know what it will be. Politics is a part of life. Theology and philosophy are disciplines that we all participate in even if we don't think so. The Bible has a lot to say about economics. How about self defense? Is war ethical? Think of all the things that someone tells you we should not touch and let's give it a try. Everything that is a part of life should be an expression of worship.

Keep it courteous and be kind to those less blessed than you, but by all means don't worry about agreeing. We learn more when we get backed into a corner.

Opus 2015-396: Election 2016: Childish Choice

I think of Donald Trump as the little boy, or child in modern gender sensitive times, who asked why the king had no clothes.

The boy was open and guileless.  He was literal and frank.  He asked a question that needed to be asked.  He woke the people up.  I would still not want him for president.  I would also not want his parents who were going along to get along.  I would not want anyone else in the population.  That leaves only the little boy.  I hope that is not where we go again this cycle.

Can’t you just imagine the debate possibilities.  Hillary, “You greedy capitalist pig, living off the blood of the masses.”  Trump, “You’re ugly.”  Bernie, “You greedy capitalist pig, living off the blood of the masses.”  Trump, “You’re a Communist fool who never had a real job.”  Joe, just about anything.  Trump, “Why is that foot in your mouth?”

The nation that elected Obama twice may not deserve better, but I sure do.

So we can be thankful for what Donald Trump brings to the table but hope for other guests and count the silverware after the meal is over.

  1. I'm with you. I very much appreciate Trump's forthright honesty, but he would be a bull in a china shop as President.
    He'd probably answer Hillary with examples of how SHE lives off the (sometimes literal) blood of the masses.

    1. I guess you could kind of look at her as a entrepreneur of graft. But would the media publish it?

      Grace and peace


Comments are welcome. Feel free to agree or disagree but keep it clean, courteous and short. I heard some shorthand on a podcast: TLDR, Too long, didn't read.
